See how Co-operative Education benefits students and employers! The Saint Mary’s University Co-op Office is a member of the Canadian Association of Co-operative Education (CEWIL). We partnered with CEWIL and Global Television to create mini-commercials to show how participating in a co-op program benefits students. These commercials feature students from a number of universities in Atlantic Canada, including Saint Mary’s own Travis Crowell, an Anthropology co-op student. Click here to see Travis on his work term, along with Robert and Emma from other universities.
